When it is determined that the student requires more than the quality differentiated teaching regularly occurring in the classroom, additional detailed planning is required.
The collaborative planning process identifies any barriers relating to a student’s full participation in the curriculum and school life. The Individual Plan determines the broad and specific areas of need for the student and the adjustments required to address those needs and typically aligns with the curriculum.
In documenting the agreed adjustments, the Individual Plan affords school staff a practical and succinct guide for implementing the agreed adjustments. Furthermore, it provides documentary evidence of compliance with the Disability Standards for Education 2005 (the Standards).
